Women's captain Sinclair calls out Canadian Soccer Association
Veteran questions organization's enthusiastic social media push of men's game
What about us?
That was Canadian captain Christine Sinclair's question Tuesday, apparently after seeing the Canadian Soccer Association's enthusiastic social media push of the Canadian men's game Oct. 16 against Dominica.
Sinclair and the fifth-ranked Canadian women are in Texas for the CONCACAF Women's Championship which doubles as a World Cup qualifying event. The event kicks off Thursday.
"Hey @CanadaSoccerEN when do the women start their World Cup qualification tournament?," Sinclair tweeted above a Canada Soccer posting with a welcome from new midfielder Ballo Tabla with information on how to buy tickets for the men's game in Toronto.

Her message seemed to find a home. The CSA retweeted a story on the women's tournament.
Then, getting in the spirit of things, Canada Soccer tweeted: "Thanks for asking Sinc! Here's the schedule and how .CanWNT fans can watch the group stage matches! Check back tomorrow for the tournament preview! Can't wait!!"
